If you are considering taking up beekeeping and want to see what it's like to work with live bees then you will be welcome at an apiary meeting. However, you will need to contact us beforehand so we can arrange for suitable protective clothing to be provided
Okehampton branch doesn't have its own apiary so our summer meetings are held at members apiaries. One advantage of this is that meetings are held all over our area so there should be a meeting nearby to all members at some time during the summer. Another advantage is that we get to see different styles of beekeeping in action.
